BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick, non-surgical treatment involving a series of injections to relax the movement of muscles that cause or accentuate wrinkles.
What are the Downtime and Results of BOTOX?
Although there’s no recovery period with BOTOX, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and/or tenderness for a few days. For one week following treatment, we recommend that you avoid sleeping on your face, rubbing the treated area (be gentle when applying makeup), exercise, tanning, and anything too hot (saunas, hot tubs, baths, hot yoga, etc.).
BOTOX onset typically appears approximately three days after treatment. While results always vary (because of different muscle strengths and the severity of each patient’s lines and wrinkles), most of our patients enjoy their correction for four full months. BOTOX treatments can be repeated every 3-4 months for optimal results.
